Pauline Hanson For Celebrity Apprentice – Can We Put Anh Do In The House With Her?

At least Pauline Hanson won’t be sucking on the public purse this time, as it is rumoured she has signed on for the Australian version of Celebrity Apprentice.

The Daily Telegraph reports the former One Nation politician has signed on for the program. Pauline Hanson his no stranger to reality TV as she was on Dancing With The Stars.

Hopefully to get some controversy going I hope Fremantle and Channel Nine put in a diverse cast around her. Comedian Anh Do would be perfect. He is asian and a refugee, two things Ms Hanson is not a fan of.

I was hoping Mark Latham was going to be the former politician on the show, as by episode two he would have unleashed his inner arsehole which would have been reality TV gold.

Other names being mentioned are Geoffrey Edelsten, apparently they also wanted his wife Brynne, but she declined. Probably a wise move for her.

Peter Andre who is better known as the former husband of Jordan may also be one of the cast. Also it says Nine is looking at an AFL football star, a celebrity chef, a competitor from The Block and a celebrity glamour girl.

Would the competitor from The Block be Waz? As he was pretty popular. However I wouldn’t mind seeing either Josh or Jenna back on our screens. No idea who the Celebrity Chef could be. I would love it to be Christine Mansfield but know she would not sign up to something like this.

One celebrity chef who won’t be on the show is the Four In Hand’s Colin Fassinidge who was approached but will be away in September when the show is being filmed. Colin has gained popularity from his appearances on Masterchef Australia, and he could be the new bad boy of the Australian chef scene.

And the glamour girl? Krystal Forscutt from Big Brother?

Mark Bouris will be the host. Celebrity Apprentice will screen on Channel Nine in 2012.

It would be great to see Jenna in this, so she can see that her tears and bitching dont work on everyone.

I’m excited :o)

Krystal should be on The Renovators with all that silicone she’s packing.

I’m with Lebay. Plenty of potential for tanties.

I’m surprised Manu hasn’t signed up already.

It’s a bit cheeky describing people like Krystal Forscutt and Peter Andre as celebrities. They’re talentless people whose 15 minutes were used up years ago and are now living their lives as permanent also-rans desperately hoping for a second chance at fame. Actually you can add Pauline to that too as she’s also an on-going failure desperately striving for a second chance at fdame and glory. Pathetic really. I’d rather see Kyle Sandilands on there with Dave Hughes. Can you imagine…

Chunks. Peter Andre talentless? But his song ‘Mysterious Girl’ was so ‘good’ that he released it twice! (Maybe that was his second chance at fame) 😉

Oh yes Chunks – Kyle and Dave – perfect.
How about :
Akermanis as the exAFL footballer?
Jana Pitman, the 400 metre hurdler – like to see how she would go in a team environment.

*chortle*@Wurstsemmel (manu)

Jana would shit me to tears in no time I’m sure

As long as is isn’t Lara Bingle.

Krystal had no hope – her mother got implants at the same time as she did. With a role model like that she was always going to focus on her body.

I actually like Pauline Hansen – she certianly livens things up, and she is a real person (sadly), and the sort of person we don’t normally see on telly, or in politics. Ahn do would be great – he is lovely, and impossible to dislike. (I met him once – he was lovely in real life too.)

If the celebrity chef criteria is…
has been
loads of blooper material

then, its easy, Peter Russell Clarke

I’m watching this one if only for the delectable Mr Bouris.

12 Culinary Boner { 08.18.11 at 8:34 pm }

I reckon they should now get David Oldfield…
…will he…*ahem*….again?

13 some random { 08.22.11 at 4:43 pm }

Apparently the contestant from the block is polly… waz and polly may have gotten some media deal with channel nine as they had a metting with the “board” or whatever it’s called. Yeah apparently polly is on the show, as much as i love her, i don’t think she’d be as funny without waz…
